So good you have to FNQ for it. Naturally brewed with fresh floral hop aromas, the colour is quite pale, with a crisp and clean flavour.

330ml bottle. Clear and bright amber colour with an even layer of delicate white foam. Cereal grain aromas reminiscent of most pale lagers. Medium body with barely a ripple of bitterness. Light on the palate with not a lot to offer.

Pours gold with white head. Good balance between the malt and the hops. Easy to drink, not pale lager is not the most exciting of beers.

KeefOz (1561) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2013
BB 14-12-13. Poured a clear pale gold colour with a two-finger white foamy head that collapsed quickly and left a few suds as lace. Medium carbonation with small bubbles. Aroma of malt or musty grain. Taste slightly of sweet malt and no real bitterness. Light body bordering on watery. Smooth, soft, light finish. Pretty ordinary.

Maris (1393) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 10/10/2012. Pours a clear yellow with a small head. Has a slight malty, grassy, grainy aroma. Flavour wise, it has a bit of Euro lager character to it, with some bready and grassy malt, and some mild hop action. Not the worst pale lager out there, but entirely unremarkable and quite dull.

floydian1 (1362) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 9, 2008
FNQ lager is one of 3 beers that are bottled for home consumption by the Blue Sky microbrewery at the moment. It is mainstream Australian style lager. It pours bright yellow with a dissipating white head. Nose of subtle floral hops with a hint of fresh sea air. Flavour is typical sweet malt with a mild lingering nasal bitterness to the finish. Medium-thin bodied. A refreshing and easily sessionable lager for the tropics.

DeliriumT (500) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2012
Very strawlike aroma. Refreshing bitterness when served cold like all Australian lagers. Quite boring, but good as a session beer.

blackbock (118) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle. Possibly the most watery beer ever made. Understandable in the FNQ climate. Nothing objectionable, but no taste either.
